    On the "What Googlebot Sees" page, it gives you a listing of keywords in my sites content.

    The odd thing is a few of them are accurate, but a lot are not. For example, halfway down the list, you start seeing my database column names as keywords. As far as I can tell, they are no where near my front end code, only existing in the code behind. I've looked through my source and I can't find them. I can't figure out how Google was able to index them.

    And...The first 2 keywords are the companys name, then the third word is a word sort of associated with the products they sell, but nowhere in the text can I find this word.

    I don't know, maybe I just haven't figure it out completely yet, but has anyone seen things like this before?

    Maybe people linking to you (if any) talk about those products, which google associates with your site?

    Google uses so many algorithms it's nuts. It's very hard to tell, but Google will mainly go by a few things, your title, url, H1 tags, then content (among a lot of other factors!)...
